Here’s a heads-up for my Richmond-area friends: I’ll be giving a talk Sunday afternoon, Sept. 18, about my book Uncle George and Me: Two Southern Families Confront a Shared Legacy of Slavery.
As part of the 2022-23 Author Showcase, I’ll be at the Gayton Kirk Presbyterian Church, 11421 Gayton Road in Henrico County, at 3 p.m.
I’ll tell how I discovered my ancestors were slave owners and then reached out to a large extended family that descends from those my family enslaved. We have become good friends.
At the end of the presentation I’ll be signing and selling books. Profits are donated to a college scholarship fund for the descendants of those my ancestors enslaved.
